Dec 15 2010 Published by under best science books 2010, science books

Another bunch of shorter lists for your reading, gift giving and collection development pleasure.

  • The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

Concurring Opinions (Privacy books)

  • The Peep Diaries: How We're Learning to Love Watching Ourselves and Our Neighbors by Hal Niedzviecki
  • The Facebook Effect by David Kirkpatrick
  • Delete: The Virtue of Forgetting in the Digital Age by Viktor Mayer-Schonberger

New York Magazine

  • The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

(The Skloot book probably deserves a special award for so often being the only science book on a list.)

I'm always looking for recommendations and notifications of book lists as they appear in various media outlets. If you see one that I haven't covered, please let me know at jdupuis at yorku dot ca or in the comments.

I am picking up a lot of lists from Largehearted Boy.

Earlier entries in this year's list of lists can be found here and the 2009 summary post here.
